A new series is releasing from Beachwalk Press in April. Today I want to share a little snippet from the first book with you.
Punished for sins not her own, can a mortal claim her vampire mate?
The world of immortals must unite to save both themselves and the mortals they co-exist with from an ancient evil.
For Bede MacTaggert this means trusting in the warrior sent for her sister—a man of mystery, of power, and one who could easily sweep her into a world she's destined to be part of.
An imperial guard to the king of vampires, Gawain has always tuned out the needs of the flesh. Dedicating himself to the service of the royals, he's lived on the fringes of his people for centuries. Now he's forced from the shadows and into the arms of a woman who will awaken his heart and body to a passion unequaled.

FORSAKEN HEART EXCERPT
"Frails are not to be toyed with," Gawain ground out and grabbed the girl, spinning her away, his sword at the ready as the man heaved upward, a dagger clutched in his hand. Gawain's sword rested easy on his palm, ready, the surface slicked with blood as he faced the coward.
"She's mine to do with as I choose." He gurgled, collapsing to the ground, his weapon falling from pudgy fingers. "Paid ten pieces of gold for 'em both, and I aim to get a might of use out 'em."
"Now she's mine," Gawain declared. Raising his sword, he drove it through the man's chest, pinning his twitching frame to the ground. He stepped back, his gaze sweeping the clearing. Males such as this did not travel alone, his cohorts would be close. He'd need to find and kill them…
Searing pain lanced through him, splitting his chest. Gawain glanced down. The thin, sharp tip of a blade stuck from his chest. He touched the blade and snarled. The metal was warm, when it should have been cold. Shock slammed into him as the blade began to glow, turning a searing red before changing back to normal, or as normal as it could be with blood racing down the weapon.
Whirling, his hand already scrabbling for the dagger's hilt in his back, he grabbed his assailant by the throat and lifted. Grunting as he pulled the weapon free, his lips curled upward. "You'd do well, wench, to know your place."
"If you think I mean to let you do her harm…" Sputtering, her nails digging into his wrists, the girl's brown eyes stared into his. Fear lay within the depths but something else stirred. Something dark, dangerous, easily recognized if one knew what they were looking for.
His fingers moved, tightening, loosening as he pulled her against him. Inhaling, he caught the faint scent of blood, fear, sweat, fire, and something sultry, sweet, and light on his tongue. Drawing the scent deep, he wallowed in it, his body responding to the aroma he'd dreamed of but never found.
Gawain inhaled slowly, his muscles tightening, burning. Using the tip of her dagger, he pushed the material of her shift aside. The scrolling marks of a serpent flared before his eyes. It coiled and danced beneath the girl's flesh.
Lots and lots of winners to announce this morning. All the giveaways have ended and its time to hopefully make someone out there happy. :)

Lily, a twenty-one-year-old, morbidly obese half-sister with Prader-Willi Syndrome, is found in the basement, too big to move out of the home. Lydia sets out on a life-changing journey trying to help Lily, trying to find Lily s father and trying to find herself. In the interim, she falls in love with Tommy Porter who remains with her right up to the climatic, mind-blowing reveal at the end.

I'm Francesca and you will meet me in each book of the Hot Bods series. In Fool Me Once, I'm the other woman. And in More Than Useful, Adam is my brother.
Lacey didn't set out in the beginning to include me in any other books but Fool Me Once, where like I said she has me as the other woman. Through out the stories I am portrayed as a gold digger in some ways. I only want a rich man and to live the fancy life. But I was happy when Mrs. Wolfe wrote Accidental Love, which releases in June, to show a different side of me.
I'm not stuck up--well not all the time. But I am going to speak my mind and I am NOT going to put up with anything. Just because I am beautiful and like to pamper myself, doesn't mean I am self-centered. Lacey is currently working on my story, that she has titled Opposites Attract. I think she has a few tricks up her sleeve. Hopefully she can get this story written soon. I must say, I have watched three girls get their man before me. And I have been there since the beginning. Mrs. Wolfe had better not make this to complicated or else I just might have to throw a fit. After all, she is trying hard to get me and Skylar (Fool Me Once) as friends. I could make that very difficult for her, if I wanted.
Before I go, enjoy this excerpt with me and Skylar from Fool Me Once
“So, how do you know Drew?” Francesca inquired.
Rolling her eyes and wondering why this day kept getting worse, Skylar answered, “I told you to ask Drew.”
“Well, I don’t want to. I’m asking you.”
Packing her things up in her cosmetic bag, she tried to ignore the woman, hoping she would just go away. She wasn’t succeeding though, the stupid girl just stood there, arms crossed, toes tapping, waiting.
“We slept together, several times.” Skylar turned toward her, also crossing her arms tightly across her chest.
It was like they were suddenly having a showdown with their eyes.
“How long ago?”
The last thing she expected was for Francesca to burst into tears. All of the sudden she was a sobbing mess. Grabbing a handful of tissues off the vanity, Skylar tossed them at her. There was no way in hell she was going to comfort this girl. All she wanted was for her to shut up.
Gazing up at the ceiling she wondered if this would be a good time to pray. Shit, this day just needed to end.
“I knew there was someone else. I just knew it!” Francesca wailed, wiping her snotty nose.
“If it’s any comfort, it was one time and then a month ago. I can’t be that special, he left me in a hotel room and never called.”
The crying stopped abruptly. “Oh, he left you too. Well, I experienced that just the other night when we were at that new bar on Cleveland Street. First, I lost him for a while and then when we went back to my place to get cozy, he just left me on the couch. I don’t remember much, I was pretty toasted.” She tossed her tissues in the trash.
An odd feeling swept through Skylar. “What night was that?” she asked.
“Uh, a few nights ago.”
Skylar was speechless. She felt like someone had just punched her in the gut. He was in the alley with her fooling around and then the asshole went home with another woman.
“It’s been nice chatting, but I have to go.” Grabbing her stuff, Skylar walked away as fast as she could. She couldn’t bear to hear any more.
I'm Adam from More Than Useful. Or at least...this is how Lacey thinks I look. Only take the scrubs off and add a police uniform.
Okay, are you done swooning? So I am, as you learn from the book, Mr. Sandy Blond Hair Blue Eyed Combo Number Nine. Or at least that is my name until my sister, Francesca finally reveals it.
I was the first male character that Lacey has written that made her heart race while writing. From what I hear, she really enjoyed the scenes that were just her and I and left Amy out.
When you meet me in More Than Useful, I have commitment issues. I like Amy and I know she isn't someone to just 'play' with. But I know before asking her out that I just might be biting off more then I can chew. Amy ends up being everything I've ever dreamed up. Sorry Lacey, but I am thankful to you for creating her.
Since I am a man of few words--and I wonder if your still staring at my picture, I'm going to leave you with a hot little (adult) excerpt. And don't forget, imagine me above but in a cop uniform.
Amy took hold of his shirt and tugged him into the ladies room and to the nearest stall.
“What are you doing?” Adam asked as the door latch locked.
Rubbing her hands along his chest, she leaned forward and let her tongue swirl around the back of his ear. “Having some fun.”
“Uh-huh.” Her lips trailed down his neck, sucking in slightly.
“You know we can get in trouble for this. I could get in a lot.”
Amy snickered as her hands slid inside his pants and she found him hard as a rock. Her fingers danced around the tip of his erection.
“Oh God.” He moaned.
A smile curved her lips as she realized what she was doing to him. Of course, if they got caught, it would be bad, but she had to have him.
Today I have author Adriana Kraft and they are here to tell us a little about their characters.
Adriana’s Swinging Character
Thanks for having us as your guests today, Lacey! Readers may not know that Adriana Kraft is actually the pen name under which my husband and I write erotic romance together. We’re having the time of our lives concocting steamy stories and getting them on the page to entertain and titillate our readers.
Today we thought we’d give you a glimpse into the sexy world of the swing lifestyle through the eyes of one of our characters. Jen and Brett Andrews are the stars of our Swinging Games series at Extasy Books. I think the simplest thing will be to just turn Jen loose to tell her story uninterrupted – without further ado, here’s Jen!
Oh my, all this excitement is more than I anticipated. I’m just a normal Empty Nester, married to the man I love for over a quarter of a century ~ it’s hard to imagine what all the fuss is about. Eight books to chronicle my adventures, more on the way, and now this interview opportunity? I meet so many women just like me in the swing lifestyle it’s hard to think there’s anything remarkable about me.
It all started innocently enough. After our two adult children moved out, Brett and I naturally had more time for bedroom activities, and less chance of being interrupted, so we started renting some adult videos created just for couples, usually by women. Let me tell you, we could count on those to get our juices flowing! Before long I noticed that what turned me on most wasn’t the hot hunks or the famous “money shot” finishes – no, what I loved to watch and re-watch was slow sensuous scenes of women loving women.
That never meant I wanted to leave Brett or that I wasn’t satisfied with him – whatever happened next, I wanted him to be a part of it, to share it with me. One of the videos had something about the swing lifestyle as part of the plot. I wasn’t even sure it really existed – boy, was I ever wrong! We did a little internet research, joined a couple sites, put our profile together and started meeting people.
What can I tell you about those early days? For sure, I went from feeling crazy to feeling quite normal. In fact, in that lifestyle, Brett and I are pretty vanilla – there’s a lot of kink out there that doesn’t trip our triggers. But that’s part of what I love about it – something for everyone, and no judgment implied.
So I hope that reading about Brett’s and my adventures offers a little something to feed your fantasies, whether or not you’d ever want to check out the lifestyle. There’s just something incredibly decadent and delightful about two, three or even more tongues – lips – pairs of hands – bodies, giving and receiving pleasure. Our latest adventure was released in January: Pushing the Limits. Here’s the blurb:
Their new Unicorn Sarah Creston may be out of town, but that doesn’t stop Jen and Brett Andrews from burning up the wires with some scorching three-way phone sex. While they’re waiting for Sarah, Ryan eagerly pursues Brett for some hot male action, followed by a house party that challenges Jen and Brett’s stereotypes. Sarah finally arrives, exhausted and drained from weeks spent helping her aging parents. Jen and Brett provide total tender care for three days—but when Jen invites Sarah to move in for the whole summer, Brett asks himself, is there a limit?
You can read more about the series HERE, and you’ll find an excerpt from Pushing the Limits HERE. Hope to see you between my pages soon!
